Symptoms

Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator Receiving Error BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY is not configured
This error can occur under several conditions:

  • Unable to open WebADI
  • After running Autoconfig on nodes not able to upload files
  • When selecting the ‘Desktop Integrator’ Responsibility the seeded menu options produces the error
  • After installing Oracle E-Business suite R12 and attempting to create a hierarchy using the create spreadsheet functionality(WebADI)
  • When creating a Layout as Trade Management Administrator
  • When attempting to do an Import inside the activity screen in Marketing Online the error occurs
Changes

Possible changes that will affect the setting for profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY:

  • Autoconfig updated or removed the existing settings for profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY
  • Cloned a new instance(11i) where the techstack has changed the value of the profile option
  • Upgrade from 11i to R12
  • Profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY configuration is incorrect based on the Application version
  • Functionality of profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY in version R12 is not required or needed
Cause
  • Autoconfig modified the existing settings for profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY
  • Web ADI Configuration Validation
  • Profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY is not properly defined with the correct value
  • Functionality of profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY in version R12 has changed
  • The cause of this problem has been identified in unpublished Bug 5240536 –  BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY IS NOT CONFIGURED. It is caused by autoconfig erasing the the BNE physical directory when autoconfig is run.
Solution

To implement the solution for Release 11i, please execute the following steps:

1. Go into the responsibility: System Administrator
2. Navigate to Profile -> System -> Profile: BNE%Directory%
3. Check the value for the profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY and verify it’s set to $COMMON_TOP/webapps/oacore/html/cabo/.
For 11i, the directory is: $COMMON_TOP/html/cabo
4. Bounce the web server and retest the issue.

And/Or

Apply Patch 5240536

This patch will stop autoconfig (concurrent/admin node) from updating profile option
BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY with the $OA_HTML/cabo directory from the
concurrent/admin node.

To implement the solution for Release 12, please execute the following steps:

1. Go into the responsibility: System Administrator
2. Navigate to Profile -> System -> Profile: BNE%Directory%
3. Remove any value in the profile BNE_UIX_PHYSICAL_DIRECTORY (null value is the default)
4. Bounce the web server and retest the issue.
Review R12 Web ADI Profile Options (Doc ID 553168.1) to get a list of Web ADI Profile Options which are supported in R12 of Oracle Applications. Any other previous BNE profile options from Release 11i are not supported in R12 and should not be used.

For more information on BNE profile options, refer to Set Profile Options section in the Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator Implementation and Administration Guide Release 12 – Part No. B31411-01
